Magsaysay Human Launched to Prepare Filipinos Planning to Work in Japan

The Magsaysay Human Language Institute (MHLI), in partnership with Magsaysay People Resources Corporation (MPRC) and Human Holdings Co., Ltd. (HH) and Human Academy Co., Ltd. (HA) of Japan, was officially launched on February 19th at 1010 Building in Manila. Gracing the ribbon-cutting ceremony were Doris Magsaysay Ho, President and CEO of Magsaysay Group of Companies; Marlon Roño, President of MPRC; and Kentarou Ozawa, Overseas Operation Executive Director of Human Holdings. 

Doris Magsaysay Ho welcomed guests from Japan Foundation, Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), International Mariners Management Association of Japan (IMMAJ), Shinkin Central Bank, Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA), and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). “Your presence is more than just setting up a new business, your presence here shows the important relationship between the Philippines and Japan, for being able to offer a win-win situation to help both the Philippines and Japan in the future, of both our economies,” shared by the Magsaysay Group President and CEO in her welcome message. 

MHLI focuses in delivering high-level Japanese education to Filipinos planning to work in Japan, equipping them with the required Nihongo fluency, both written and verbal, as well as proper Japanese etiquette. “Our project in the Philippines will be using new technology developed in Japan such as using your iPhone application for helping develop communication skills of hearing and speaking," said Kentarou Ozawa. The Institute also offers custom programs of Japanese language training, with focus on specific industries. As a result, the students at MHLI will acquire the necessary communication skills for various occupations in each of the Japanese industries.

“This idea of Filipinos learning the Japanese language and the Japanese culture allows them with an opportunity to work in Japan and hopefully one day fuel growth of investment in Philippines by the Japanese companies,” Doris said. By expanding the Japanese Language program in the Philippines, MHLI aims to contribute to solve the serious issue of lack of manpower in Japan.
